Konnect Cornwall CIC

Konnect Cornwall was set up to help those with need, in Cornwall.
As a company we use experienced and caring staff from professional backgrounds including from the Police and Probation Service, social care, counselling and other such expertise.
We know about crime, the victims and the impact crime can have upon them. Our background gives us an experienced insight and can benefit any victim by reassuring them regarding safety and ensuring that everything has been done for them.

Konnect is a community interest company set up in 2014.
Konnect evolved from work that the directors Ian Curnow and Tris Ley did during their previous careers.
Ian has had several years experience in dealing with prolific offenders where he worked in a multi-agency environment with probation, health and social care. The work involved understanding the causes of their offending as well as supporting, motivating and mentoring them to change their lives.
Tris spent time in investigation including working with victims. He also worked with offenders over a longer period, in changing their lives, re engaging them with family and moving them forward into work. He and his wife Heather have also been foster carers for many years working with all age groups as well as family units in which they have specialised.
At Konnect we provide understanding, reassurance and continued practical support to victims of crime. We fully assess / risk manage situations and look to provide the best support and highest level of service, to all victims. In considering each person, we will 'Konnect' them with other appropriate and bespoke services if required, to enhance that support.
Our aim is to reassure and re empower the victim.
Having access to a wealth of former professional staff including experienced Police Officers / carers / coaches / social workers, the victim will have the opportunity to discuss / work through any concerns at their own pace.
They can also seek any further help they may need, supported by our staff, whether that be by help in form filling or taking to / accompanying at any appointment or chasing up any awaited response.
They will be given confidence by the experience and diligence of their Konnect worker whose primary focus will be on their welfare and continued safety.
Konnect trains its staff in coaching / mentoring and we look to motivate, inspire and enable individuals to move forward positively and freely, as they would have been able to, prior to any incident. Clearly, the effect of crime on differing individuals is never the same but every step forward takes us further from the past.
We have also worked and continue to work with those who have committed crime to help reduce re-offending and to understand their motivations. We help to tackle peopleâÂ?Â?s issues, their barriers to progression, to train and prepare them for work and a life free from crime and its effects.
This continued insight helps us to advise victims around additional safety measures and steps to prevent re occurrences, making our communities safer for us all.
Konnect Cornwall CIC is a member of the Safer Stronger Consortium.
